Hotmail Launches Accounts You Can Throw Away

Friday Feb 4th 2011 by Staff

Microsoft makes it easier to sign up for multiple e-mail addresses.

Cnet: Today, Microsoft's Windows Live Hotmail e-mail service has launched a new feature that makes it possible to track multiple e-mail accounts without logging in multiple times. The company says the feature is targeted at "e-mail enthusiasts" and will make it easier to manage multiple accounts and avoid spam.

"Today we all often have multiple e-mail accounts for many different reasons," said Microsoft's Dharmesh Mehta. "One of which is that I don't want to give my real address out to any site in the world. I might be worried they'll spam me with newsletters, or they might resell it to other marketers. Who knows what can happen?"
